Mahb Mabob Nib! (CLAP!)
Lucille and Johnny (who?), the famous singing spokesmen for Oldsmobile (they are?) accept a tour of the plant by their show's sponsor. While waiting for Lucille to do who knows what, Johnny meets an old friend, who is experimenting with a communicator into space! While his friend is away, Johnny picks up a broadcast from Mars about the impending takeover of Earth! The martians send over a representative to take notes.
When Lucille and Johnny (who?) take the tour, they're joined by a bespectacled man named Martin (lol stupid but effective joke) who suspiciously takes a lot of notes and pictures of this tour! It's up to Martin to stop him!
So essentially what we have hear is a film thats half sci-fi serial and half plant tour. It's a very odd combination, but the film has plenty of silly hilights, including the stupidest ending anyone could dream of, to keep us all entertained. A bit of a fun movie!

Actor in "Rocket engine" Buick TV commercial believes he has stumbled on a Martian plot to engage in espionage and sabotage on Earth. It's a blend of a Jam Handy-like industrial film with a tongue-in-cheek nod to "Radar Men from the Moon". Part one is hysterical at times, but then it turns into a bore.
